The World is rumoured to be returning to Batemans Bay in 2017. Last here in 2009 the ship had to moor off near the Toll Gate Islands and ferry passengers back and forth via tenders to the PWD wharf near the Clyde Bridge. The last visit saw passengers visit go on pre-organised tours of Mogo Village including Mogo Zoo and The Original Gold Rush Company while others enjoyed a Clyde River cruise. MS "The World" is the largest privately owned residential yacht. The residents, from about 45 countries, live on board as the ship travels, staying in most ports several days. A few residents live on board full time while most visit periodically throughout the year. Source According to The World website "With only 165 individual Homes, The World’s Residents enjoy one of the most exclusive lifestyles imaginable. Not only do Residents own their individual Residences, but collectively, they own the ship, ensuring that the experiences – both onboard and off – are far beyond current luxury travel standards".
